At William Fry's end-of-year CounselConnect event on 6 December, Julie Murray (consultant/corporate knowledge lawyer) opened the Staying ahead of the curve in 2023 panel session acknowledging the large number of legal developments which have occurred over the past twelve months, with further discussions around how to prepare for anticipated changes in 2023. 

The panel session focused on the areas of corporate, insolvency, technology and litigation. Issues discussed by Ronan Shanahan (partner, Corporate/M&A), Ruairi Rynn (partner/Insolvency), Gail Nohilly (knowledge lawyer, Litigation & Dispute Resolution) and David Kirton (partner/Technology) included ESG, the AI Act, developments in the area of directors' duties and changes to the examinership system in Ireland. 

Covering the management topic, the day also featured an interactive session from Henry Hely Hutchinson on how coaching skills such as active listening, tuning into body language and using practical coaching models can turn conversations into powerful conversations.

And on topics that qualify for solicitors' regulatory element of their CPD obligations, attendees at the on-line event received links to a video on Building high-impact professionals - from the inside-out featuring Catherine O'Flynn and Antoinette Moriarty and a podcast with Laura Murdock, Gillian Lynch and Richard Breen on Privilege and Regulation: A look at the new edition of the Solicitor's Guide to Professional Conduct.
